Her senior year in high school was very chaotic, as she was in the video production program, and invited Snoop Dogg for one of her videos on the rival game she reviewed. Mikaela once shared that she was told during her school years that she wasn’t smart enough, and still thinks that her brain is her biggest insecurity, because she was treated in such a way that she didn’t ever feel clever or able to do interesting things. That is why she didn’t enjoy studying neither at school nor at college. However, her attitude to herself changed when she studied at beauty school, as her education there went in a different way.
Mikaela matriculated from her high school in 2017, and then became a certified esthetician, as it was her main passion, even bigger than YouTubing.
Mikaela actually started her acting career in 2012, when she first appeared in the show “Kids React”. The show was launched on the FBE YouTube channel, having kids under 14 reacting to various challenge videos, pranks, music videos, etc. Mikaela appeared in six episodes, in the regular cast of the series. In 2013 she appeared in seven more episodes, and was then as she turned 14, she transitioned to the “Teens React” show. She continued appearing in ‘reacting’ videos, also making cameo appearances in gaming videos on the FBE channel. In 2014 she could be seen in such episodes as “Teens React to Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1”, “SUPER SMASH BROS. (N64) (Teens React: Retro Gaming)” and “Teens React to danisnotonfire and AmazingPhil!”.
In 2015 Mikaela joined the cast of “Teens React” to answer the most popular question of that year – ‘What color is the dress?’ – discussing the viral photo of a dress which some people saw as white and gold and others identified as blue and black. All in all, Mikaela appeared in 20 episodes of various reacting videos during the year.
In 2016 Mikaela could be seen in 39 varied videos on FBE channel, as she participated in all kinds of reacting videos from the “Advice” series to “Do The Know It?” series of videos. 2017 was the last year Mikaela filmed in “Teens React” videos, as she dropped out of YouTube to focus on her education.
Further working for FBE channel
FBE channel on YouTube is a very popular source of funny pranks and reacting videos, which is followed by almost 20 million subscribers. The channel’s most favorite video which gained more than 51 million views is entitled “YouTubers React to Try to Watch This Without Laughing or Grinning”; it was posted in 2013 and featured such famous YouTubers as PewDiePie, Brittani Louise Taylor, Jack and Finn Harries and many others, who tried not to laugh or even smile while watching funny videos. The series of such videos had many episodes featuring new YouTube stars, and Mikaela appeared in one of those episodes. The idea of similar videos became so successful and popular, that FBE crew launched another YouTube channel entitled “Try Not To”, and it has almost half a million subscribers.
Mikaela has worked as a content creator on FBE channel since 2017, after having worked on it as a model and actress. She became recognized and popular, and so launched her own channel.
Mikaela’s YouTube channel
Starting from February 2017 Mikaela uploaded videos which she filmed, edited and promoted on her own. Most of them were make-up tutorials and “Q&A” videos, but she soon switched to prank videos and more reacting videos, as it was something she was very good at. She also shocked her followers and viewers posting the video in which she got a tattoo on the inner side of her lower lip. The tattoo said “TERIC”, being a mix of the names of her YouTube mates, Boston Tom and Eric Beckerman. The video was entitled “I GOT THEIR NAMES TATTOOED ON ME! | FT. Boston Tom and Eric Beckerman”, and attracted over 200,000 views, posted for the 100,000 subscribers milestone at Mikaela’s channel.
The tattoo was indeed real, but Mikaela shared that it became quite blurry in a year, so it can hardly be read in 2020.
Personal life, boyfriend Jack O’Shea
Mikaela never shared any details on her previous relationships until she started dating Jack, as she felt very uncomfortable sharing personal information. However, she made several videos sharing the details of her affair with her YouTube colleague, Jack O’Shea. There’s a seven years gap in their ages (as of 2020, Mikaela is 21 and Jack is 28). They often post their mutual photos on their Instagram accounts, as Jack has his own YouTube channel called “Pool Boy TV”. Mikaela and Jack has been dating since 2019.
